Wow. This is spectacular! I am so impressed, David. And I agree with Nigel…I think this is one of your very best.
Thank you!! I had a good time out there and can’t wait to take more night shots.
One of your best shots, David… love this one very much. well done…
Thank you Nigel for the awesome comments. Sorry it took so long for me to reply, it’s been crazy!!
Great shot! I love long exposure shots like these, they’re absolutely worth the effort of lugging a tripod around 😉
Thank you Jim, I had a good time playing around with the long exposures that day! 😀
Nice work, David! Now I wish I’d have gotten my act together and went to Seattle with you.
Ha, you should have!! 😛
I’ve been thinking about doing a night shot like this for some time… guess I am too chicken to be hanging out in Seattle after dark. Especially the area where you took this photo. 😉
Great shot David. Love the composition except… maybe it’s just me, but that single light in the center of the dark sky seems distracting.
Hi Emily, are you talking about the street lamp? Not much I can do about that little sucker, but, I do see what you mean! Thanx for stopping by.
The single orange one above the stadium — the UFO. 😉
The trail of lights from the elapsed time makes this photo seem so still, actually. Like the city is sleeping under the watchful star of that streetlamp. Almost has a ‘nativity’ appeal to it. Very beautiful.
Thank you Heather. It was a toss up between which photo to use from the bridge, perhaps I will post some of the other ones in the not so distant future! 😀
Great shot. I second Nancy’s question – where did you set up to get that shot? (I want to go there and try it out)
It’s the 12th Ave S (Dearborn Street) bridge. There’s a little park just south of the bridge (as soon as you go over the bridge, take the first right…can’t miss the parking lot as it’s the very next driveway). Between the park and the bridge, you can get some pretty nice shots. The problem I had with the park were the trees…grrr…
Did you use a tripod for this shot? And where on earth where you standing? I love the streams of light.
I did use a tripod! I was on a bridge which goes over the freeway. Thank you for the comments.
